Over the weekend, Croatia Airlines introduced two new seasonal routes departing from Split. The airline officially inaugurated services to Skopje and Oslo, expanding its flight network. Flights to the Macedonian capital will operate twice per week until October 12, utilizing the 76-seat Dash 8 aircraft. Croatia Airlines faces no competition on this route, providing travelers with a convenient and exclusive option. On the other hand, services to Oslo will also be available twice per week, operated by the 144-seat Airbus A319 jet. This route, however, will see direct competition with SAS Scandinavian Airlines and Norwegian Air Shuttle, reports EX-YU Aviation.
The maiden flight to Oslo carried 82 passengers, and the return service had 89 travelers on board. This positive response reflects the strong demand from Scandinavian markets for travel to Split. Croatia Airlines' Head of Sales, Marija Pavić, expressed satisfaction with the passenger numbers, emphasizing the airline's commitment to meeting the needs of travelers from the region. The introduction of these new routes further enhances the airline's connections and contributes to the accessibility of Split from both Skopje and Oslo.
